Very good! Made for a Lenten church supper. Quite popular. Added 2 teaspoons Old Bay and a can of clams with juice.

Made for Friday night dinner for my family, and we all very much enjoyed. Husband had FOUR bowls! I didn't tell the kids (ages 3 and 7) that they were eating cod, and they ate every drop. I didn't change or add anything to the recipe and was delicious as is. Reminded me of the chowders we had in Cape Cod as a kid. Will add to our normal rotation.

This recipe is too bland and not thick enough. I cooked some bacon until crisp and set aside. I used the bacon drippings to saute the onion, diced carrots can of diced potatoes and a half bag of broccoli. I added 4 cups of chicken broth and simmered until carrots and broccoli were tender. I added 2 lbs. of cod in pieces. I added 2 cups of half and half and 4 tbls. of flour to thicken. Corn starch could also be used, Seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and thyme. Added chopped bacon. Delicious!!!!

Great chowder. I added 1 can clams and Old Bay seasoning. I also roughly grated 1/2 a carrot and added for some color.

I made half the recipe for my husband and me, and we ate every last drop for supper--oink. I substituted half of the water with clam juice, and I used a combination of milk and half & half because that was what I had. Very good!
